Music by the Sea 2018
Wednesdays from May 16 to Sept. 12, 2018 | 6 – 9 p.m. at St. Johns County Ocean Pier
The Music by the Sea series presents its 16th season in 2018, with concerts beginning on May 16, 2018, and continuing each Wednesday evening through September 12, 2018. This annual summer music and food celebration features local bands and performers paired with local restaurants to entertain visitors and promote St. Augustine Beach.
This exciting concert series features a different delicious restaurant at each concert event along with a different local performer. The concerts are a family-friendly event and a favorite thing to do among locals during the summer in St. Augustine. Guests can purchase a dinner plate from the sponsoring restaurant and kick back and relax while enjoying some great tunes.
Music by the Sea concert series takes place every Wednesday evening from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the St. Johns County Pier on St. Augustine Beach. The concerts take place "rain or shine," but may occasionally have to be canceled if the weather is severe. The best way to check if the concert will go on is to visit the Facebook page for Music By the Sea some time after 3:00 p.m. on the day of the show.
